  • What's New

In August 1992, Austin voters overwhelmingly approved the SOS Water Quality Ordinance and the Save Our Springs Alliance was incorporated to defend and advocate for the ordinance, Barton Springs, and the Edwards Aquifer ecosystem.

Now, 22 years later, as the threats to Barton Springs and the aquifer unfortunately continue,  we're still here fighting to protect them.

Please join us, we need your support!

You have to squint at the drawing – they don’t really want us to know what it looks like.

Waste Water, Waste Money
Wednesday, 24 June 2015

Thursday, June 18th the Austin City Council approved an allegedly final $5.6 million pay increase for the contractors who built the Billion Dollar Mistake on the Lake, aka Water Treatment Plant No. 4. The payment was approved as a "settlement" of a dispute with the water plant contractors - and demonstrated yet again that the Austin Water Utility staff misled both the City Council and the public by insisting that the contract called for a "Guaranteed Maximum Price" and that the "Construction Manager at Risk" would be stuck with any cost overruns.
